What a day!!!!

First I want to thank Angela for asking about me! My allergies are a bit better right now thanks. Okay so to my day. Well I had to go grocery shopping this morning and then had intended on doing some school before lunch, then eat lunch, then finish up, then let the kids do their chores. Well do things ever work out as we plan??????? NO!!! I went to the bathroom after lunch and there was blood( sorry if that is TMI)on the toliet paper and it was bright red. so I started getting really scared. Back up to yesterday and I kept getting these shooting pains down there so my first thought went to that. Also two nights ago I had a terrible dream about this same thing. I dreamed I started bleeding but it was heavy heavy bleeding and then we lost the baby so I was extremely terrified. So anyway, I called my mom first to see if she might be able to get off work if the midwife wanted me to come in. Well she was having to go to the dentist today , to make a long story short my dh said he would be off in time. i had to go see the doctor that is in with the midwives. WE took the little one with us and left the older ones with our neighbor. WE got there and they did urine sample and there was blood in my urine so I was starting to get scared. He came in and checked me to be sure i did not have a infection in my cervix and to be sure it was closed and everything was fine there . So we had to go havea ultrasound, I was nervous. Then the baby popped up and the heartbeat was good and strong!!! Placenta looked good, everything looked really good. Also they did a internal one to be sure my cervix was not shortening or anything and everything looked good there, He told me it was probably a blood vessle that popped and told me to take it easy. LOL< yeah okay with 5 kids I will hehe! And we also find out that we are having another BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! While I did want a girl I am super glad he is healthy!!! So that is it for my wild day. I have to go back next Monday to be sure everything is okay and my big ultrasound is still scheduled for APril 23rd . But it is definately a boy, he was not shy at all.

Soooooooooo sick

I have been so sick this one. One day my hubby even came home to find me in bed. That has never happened I do not think in our 7 yrs of marriage. I do not really get sick but this time it really hit me. I think it mostly is allergies and such but it was really rough. Felt like I had been hit by a transfer truck or maybe worse. I am feeling a bit better and really mommies can't be sick long anyway so I just sucked it up and tried to keep on going. It has been rough too, makes it even worse when you cannot take much of anything cause you are pregnant. I am not complaining though, I am super excited that I am pregnant. Monday I went for my midwife check up. The kids were with me and everyone got to hear the baby's heartbeat. It was in the 160's so maybe it is a girl! HEHE. Anyway hopefully we will know soon cause I have my ultrasound appt on April 23rd. :) Not much else going on around here. Hubby's work has been a slow so we are sort of stressed about that but I know God will provide and will bring back more work. Tommorrow we are meeting my sister and her kids for a Easter egg hunt and then going to our parents house for a family meal. SO that will be nice. This year we decided to explain things to the kids about the Easter bunny. Yes, we were awful parents and told our little ones the truth about the bunny and all,even our 5 yr old seem to take it in stride though. So no baskets this year from the bunny. I bought them new baskets for the egg hunt and bought them some candy and fruit snacks and such so I think that is why things went over smoothly. And I was so proud cause when I was trying to move slowly into telling them I asked them what Easter was all about and our 5 yr old daughter said Jesus is not dead. Makes a mama smile! Well that is about it. Gotta go get everything ready, we are gonna color some eggs.

This is terrible since I homeschool my kids but I have just had to bite my tongue and work through it.


It is like I am wired this way, when 9:00 rolls around I start losing steam. Even when I was younger my parents never had a problem with me going to bed. Now it irrates my hubby some I think. Doesn't mean I get to go to bed at 9:00 though lol


Always been really easy to cry. It is insane. Get my feelings hurt really easily/

I always dreaded this. I did better when I was making a menu but I have fell out of that, got to start that again.

There is a petition to sign at! It is very important not only to homeschoolers but to parents. Some parents may not realize that this has to do with parent's rights as much as homeschooling families. Please sign this and let your friends and family know!

Well my hopes were bashed last night

McCain is finally the winner. WE are in for some bad days ahead. Everyone thinks it is going to be so much better when we get a new president in there . My oh My are they gonna be surprised. But frankly , I know God is my president and he will take care of me so I am not too terribly worried although it does make me sick to think of any of the three leading us. I think none of them, even McCain has too much moral value. Kind of sad to me but what can ya do. Maybe I will be proven wrong but I totally doubt it.
In other news school is going pretty good today. Except for the one child everyone has stayed on task pretty well. WE have to do some major work in grammar I see though. My one child is very trying and it really upsets me now cause he will be really good for a few days or even a week and then just start having terrible days. But I am pretty proud of how well he is doing considering he is off all his meds. For those that do not know he was diagnosed with ADHD and is also bipolar while this diagnosis is right on in my opinion I feel he can still function without being drugged. The doctor we were going to had him on 3 different meds and just kept uping them. I have now switched doctors and have tried to changed his eating habits and starting giving him more vitamins and cod liver oil. I think the meds were making him have outburst actually. Anyway, I am proud of that and he actually is focusing pretty well. It is trying some days but I know I am doing the best thing for him.
Well I am 12 weeks and 2 days today. I cannot wait to find out what the baby is although I think we may be having another boy. I want a girl this time so bad but a healthy baby is what we trully seek! I go back to the doctor on march 17th. :) We have 3 birthdays this month. Our twin boys were born march 10 and our youngest dd march 14th so we are doing like we did with our oldest dd and youngest ds and combining their parties together so I have that to plan. Busy busy busy! I am getting my hair cut tonight so I am excited, I haven't had a hair cut in a long while. I think only once since the little one has been born and he is a yr old.

Well ........

I could not think of a title so I just put well. LOL! I guess that shows what mood I have been in lately. The past week I have felt so exhausted. I have no idea what is going on. I have had a sick one but she has still been sleeping good. The little one has not but he is just now running a fever so I am wondering if that is what has been wrong with him. He started breaking out in a rash a couple of days ago and today looked like he might break out more and he was running a temp of 100.8 . He did not take a nap all day. He usually takes one at around 9:30 in the morning and then another around 2:00 but today he did not. He passed out after supper around 5:00 so I bet he will be up tonight too but I just could not keep him up, he was sooooooooooooo tired. Anyway, back to me being exhausted . I do not remember feeling like this until the end of my pregnancy. IT is like something has zapped my get up and go! What is weird too is I am getting a belly, it is easy to spot but yet the scale does not really show I have gained anything. I will be 12 weeks Monday. My hubby still says it is twins and one is just hiding. HAHA!!! NOt funny. I have had two ultrasounds already and it is just one! My neighbor told me it looked like I had lost weight in my face ,neck and such so maybe I have lost weight in other places and gained in my tummy.
WE had a pretty good week of school last week though so I am proud of that. There are things I want them all to know by the end of this year but we will be schooling through summer anyway so I am not in too big of hurry. I am already trying to think of what I want to do next year. I may switch back to using Christian LIberty like I did our first year, I dunnno.
Well that is about it for now, I think I am just gonna sit back and relax while the little one is asleep because ya never know what tonight will bring. Maybe he will be so tired he will sleep all night cause he has been up since 4:45 am . Have a blessed night !
